Hey everyone, how are you?
After being told to have a restful and relaxing day yesterday, today, I need to get back to writing.
I didn’t write yesterday, things were bad yesterday and I had phone calls from health people to make sure that I was alright. From those conversations I was told to have a restful and relaxing day. So, I stayed in bed and read a bit, but generally didn’t do much of anything. I did not go out either, so, I have to go out today as I have run out of one of my medications. So, I need to pick it up my medication from the pharmacy. Something that I have been meaning to do all week, but it has been such a weird week that I don’t know whether I am coming or going. Aside from that I am going to be writing for a good chunk of the day. I need to get some academic journals read and notes made on them. So that, I can reference them and use them in the book chapter.
Writing will be on one specific section of the book chapter and I am hoping to get more into writing it. Even if it is just a draft I want to make sure that it is good. As this chapter is going to be published and so I need to show that I can still write at a good academic standard. It is slightly nerve wrecking but in a good way. In that, I feel the pressure of writing it but it is a good pressure that I can handle and not crumble under. If I get the chance I also want to write and mind map out some more of the short story. It has been so long since I have looked at the short story because the chapter has been taking up so much of my life. And I am missing writing fiction. So, that is my other writing aim for the day. Writing also helps to distract me from what is going on in my head and helps me to keep negative thoughts at bay.
I am also back to drumming three times a day. I started back up with it yesterday after two days off. It has been nice to go back to drumming and it has been refreshing. I am mostly drumming rudiments to a metronome. Making sure that I am keeping time and keeping to a good pace. I can also try and push myself to going faster and still keep time. I am also doing some basic rock beats. One of which I have not played in a long time so I need to get back into. It is hard as I have been tapping it but there is a song I can listen to that uses this beat so hopefully I can hear where all the hits are.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
